A lipoma is a fatty tumor located just below the skin. It isn’t cancer and is usually harmless. A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump that’s most often situated between skin and the underlying muscle layer. A lipoma, which feels doughy and usually isn’t tender, moves readily with slight finger pressure.
The surgery was successful after a long wait. Thank you everyone for the wishes. Hope to get back to the field very soon!🙏 pic.twitter.com/3ECU2L9XYj
